I love coconut water however not just any coconut water. I tried several bottled coconut water and a couple of them gets pretty close to the real stuff, but there is always an aftertaste. So typically my choice is fresh coconut water. One way I get my fresh coconut water is from our local farmer’s market on Saturdays.
Here are three reasons why I revitalize with coconut water:
1. Optimize thyroid function: The manganese in coconut water stimulates the thyroid’s production. Researchers at Colorado Neurological Institute report sipping coconut water can speed fat burning and increase energy levels in as little as 20 minutes.
2. Boost happy hormones: Vitamin b6 and b 12 increase the brain’s output of feel-good chemicals serotonin and dopamine, leading to sharper thinking and a more positive outlook.
3. Flushes false fat: Based on a study from Malaysia, coconut water was shown to be 11 percent more hydrating to the body than plain water. This also prompts the body to release excess water weight for instant slimming effect.
